Vice President of the Republic of Ghana Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has opened his doors to the public and in particular to some of his critics who claim his office is “full of Northerners” for independent checks.
In an appreciation post to his staffers, the Vice President listed all the 21 staffers in his office and their designation, revealing a clear dominance of Ashantis and other tribes as against Northerners, as the impression was created.
While not addressing the issue frontally, the Vice President wrote on his verified Facebook page:
“As I start another term of office as Vice President, I would like to thank all my Heads of Departments and staff, who have done some really excellent work over the past four years to help substantially deliver on the President’s vision for Ghana. I am truly grateful for your service, not just to me, but to mother Ghana
